When? How?

When did I stop blogging? (Oh...well, that would have been last August.)
When do I begin again? (Hm-kay...I'm trying to now.)

How do I get started when it's been such a crazy long time since I last posted?
How do I "cover" the last um....9 months???

No, I did not have a baby! ;-)
The 9-month timing is a coincidence.

But we did go through a major life change. We bought a new home. And moved. After 17 years at the same address!
This was a biggie for us. I loved our previous is a great house in a neighborhood we love, with wonderful neighbors and a convenient location.

We did not want to relocate. But we needed something different in a home. So...we searched around and until we found what we were looking for. We ended up buying a home on the other side of the same neighborhood. It's exactly what we needed! *Happy sigh!*

I can't pretend that moving was easy. It was an ordeal. We got thorough it; enough about that. I'm sure I'll write more about it later.

There have been other things on my schedule as well...I might eventually get to some of them. For now, I have a tile to post for this week's Diva Challenge, # 218: White on Black on Found. And I am a bit flummoxed because I realize that in creating it I unintentionally used the same basic string as the last two tiles I posted! REALLY???!!! Couldn't I have used a different composition?!

Well, I could have. But I didn't. And I want to move forward. So I am sharing it anyway:

hypnotic, a hybrid hybred with some beadlines thrown in,
a hint of tipple, and floo.

Comments are always deeply appreciated.


  1. Congratulations..and maybe you wandered back to a familiar string because of all your new changes! Lovely tile and good luck in your new home.

    1. Good point, Beth! I hadn't thought about it that way. The way you put it makes a lot of sense. :-)

  2. Welcome back to blogging. Your tile is beautiful!

  3. Fun tile! Glad you found your way back :)

  4. I agree with Beth - after a move, you do try to recreate at least some corners of the familiar place. Presumably, that's what you do with your string - which is a perfectly good, versatile string. I love how you used everything rounded except that wonderful Betweed running down the middle. Nice tile!

  5. Thank you, Yukari, Dorita, and Antonine. Feels nice to be back. :-)

  6. Lovely tile! Welcome back and good luck for your new home!

  7. Your tile has so much dimension...not sure what is creating it, because with white on black there is not much depth. But it is there and your starting again...lovely that you are settled enough to join in again. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
